Here are links to two Freddie Mac training presentations on Short Sale Negotiations. The first link is for a training program for lenders servicing Freddie Mac loans. The second is for “Real Estate Professionals.”
I think you’ll find it interesting to compare the information provided to servicers to the information given to the real estate community.
I have found it very helpful in better understanding what the short sale negotiator at the lender’s office is thinking, when and why they might put specific conditions on a seller, and what it is generally that the bank considers a positive outcome on a short sale.Tweet
